Sylvia, approaching 35, is the "sassy weather girl" at a Seattle TV station. On a live broadcast, she castigates her boyfriend Dale (who's the show's anchorman) for sleeping with his co-anchor; then she quits. She'd been living with Dale, who explains himself by saying she's cold, so she moves in temporarily with her younger brother Walt. His neighbor Byron, a computer programmer, is always in Walt's flat working. While Sylvia looks for a job, Byron offers himself as a no-strings-attached rebound-sex partner, with the condition that she not tell Walt. How will she respond, and what about finding work, living with her brother, sorting things out with Dale, and being cold? Written by
For me this movie was a 6ish. The acting is good but not great although the biggest letdown is the script. If you've seen a few of these before you know what is going to happen at least half an hour earlier.
Don't mean to sound rude but Tricia O'Kelley is a 41 year old actress playing a 35 year old woman. You kind of feel the age difference between her and the 28 year old Patrick J. Adams getting in the way of their acting. Another so-so performance comes from Mark Harmon. He is very stiff and lifeless and I don't think that was intentional.
Would I pay money to see this: no. Would I recommend this to couple friends: yes. Its a no-nonsense movie easy going and without side effects. Anyone looking for art and a cathartic experience will be very disappointed.
